The Memory House By Rachel Hauck

Embracing the future means remembering the past . . .
When Beck Holiday lost her father in the North Tower on 9/11, she also lost her memories of him. Eighteen years later, she’s a tough New York City cop burdened with a damaging secret, suspended for misconduct, and struggling to get her life in order. Meanwhile a mysterious letter arrives informing her she’s inherited a house along Florida’s northern coast, and what she discovers there will change her life forever. Matters of the heart only become more complicated when she runs into handsome Bruno Endicott, a driven sports agent who fondly recalls the connection they shared as teenagers. But Beck doesn’t remember that either.
Decades earlier, widow Everleigh Applegate lives a steady, uneventful life with her widowed mother after a tornado ripped through Waco, Texas, and destroyed her new, young married life. When she runs into old high school friend Don Callahan, she begins to yearn for change. Yet no matter how much she longs to love again, she is hindered by a secret she can never share.
Fifty years separate the women but through the power of love and miracle of faith, they each find healing in a beautiful Victorian known affectionately as The Memory House.

My Thoughts...

 I have never read a book by Hauck that I did not LOVE. Are you tired of reading books with perfect, flawless characters? If you answered yes, then this book is for you. You have to be a very special author to write Time-slip books and do it well. Hauck does it like no other. Hauck gave us imperfect characters, that made me love them and relate to them. 2 Sets of couples that you are sure to fall in love with. 2 Stories that come together and make you sad to see it come to an end. 
You must pick up a copy of this 5 star must read book. I HIGHLY recommend it.
